“...Jesuit, he is definitely a leftist...”
It is never logical to stereotype and generalize. Many Jesuits are leftists, however I am blessed to know a wonderful 80+ year old Jesuit who is deeply conservative and not the least bit liberal!! I was very pleased to get to know him however, because many of the more prominent Jesuits in charge of places such as Georgetown, etc., are liberal and need our prayers to get back on track.
There are conservative Jesuits and the fact that one just became Pope is a HUGE BLESSING and message for the entire church.
I realize that you are right; its just that all the jesuits that I have known were radical leftists.
